From the Native Women’s Association of Canada:
Each year on October 4th communities across Canada come together to honour the lives of missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls. As we do so, we remember the lives of sisters, daughters, mothers and grandmothers tragically taken from us.
There will be at least 164 vigils on Thursday, October 4 across Canada. A full list of cities and towns with all information can be found here: http://nwac.ca/programs/2012-vigil-locations
The www.october4th.ca website was created as a place of hope and healing where we can all come together to honour missing and murdered Aboriginal women and girls. When you visit, you will be invited to light a candle and leave a dedication. Please join us!
